Visiting the Derby area on business, nice to stay in a small town location and see something of the countryside instead of urban sprawl! This guest house is clean and comfortable, and Beverly is very helpful when it comes to local places. The room was larger than average and with ensuite shower and loo. Bed firm but comfortable, I do...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Melbourne is a very nice little town but so close to Derby that the journey is short enough. I do have some feather pillows in my laundry room in case anyone wants them but because of allergies decided not to put them in rooms unless asked for. I would be...

My husband and I stayed two nights to visit friends. The accommodation had everything we needed, even including an iron and ironing board in the room. The bed was comfortable and large, the bathroom well-equipped, plenty of hangers in the wardrobe. A slightly larger room might have been nice - some of the others are larger, in fact. Our room...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. As you found we are a typical home, each room is individual in size and shape, and as the house was built in around 1846 we have tried to work with the building as best we can. Some rooms...

Totally immaculate throughout with all the little toilet that the top hotels used to offer. The owner again went out of her war to ensure our race van could get parked safely and she even served our breakfast an hour earlier so we could attend our Donington qualifying in plenty of time . You couldn't wish for better.
